Random Thoughts & Catching Up....

I think this is the longest my blog has ever gone without a post from me.  I warned you'll that this may happen during this pregnancy - so for those of you who are still checking in, i'm here - just really busy!

The past 3 weeks have been filled with at least one person in the house not feeling well.  Started with the hubs, then went to the bug.  They both battled some viral funk that finally resulted in nasty sinus infections for both.  I was thrilled though because that meant that they could both finally need an antibiotic which would put an end to the two weeks of suffering & at least one person waking me up in the middle of the night needing me!  It took both of them about 4 days on the antibiotic to start to really perk up.

We traveled to visit my husband's Nannie for her 90th birthday.  We had a lovely visit with her and are so thankful we are able to spend the time with her.  She's pretty feisty & in great health for 90.  She actually has an aunt who will be 105 this May!


One of my worst ailments of this pregnancy is that I have a sensitivity to the heat indoors and in vehicles.  It just sucks every last bit of moisture out of my sinuses and leaves them burning & bleeding.  It's not pleasant.  I've basically not been able to exist without a humidifier since November.  The traveling last weekend, 3 hours each way in the car, really put a hurting on my sinuses and I can finally say that today is the first day that I am feeling back to normal in a week.  I think I need to invent a mask where I just breath in humid air at all times! lol!  Sad.  I am really wishing away this winter & truly cannot wait until the weather warms up & we don't need to run the heat any longer.  (Not to mention that I am basically freezing my family out of house & car with the lowest possible temp settings we can be comfortable on.)

The highlight of our week was this:



Our sweet peek at our littlest one at my 21 week ultrasound.  Baby looked perfect & wonderful!  We are team green over here.  Didn't find out with Lyla either.  I think the baby has the same sweet overbite that Lyla has and that just makes me melt.  I love her little chin & I eat all over it all the time!

My big project now is stocking up on diapers & wipes!  I am a big Pampers diapers & Huggies wipes snob for the first year for my babies.  So the next few months will be spent working my coupon magic to make room for baby expenses in our budget again!

Sweet picture :) I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on diaper/wipes deal hunting - it seems to be tougher to score than it used to! We are Huggies wipes snobs as well

How exciting that you all aren't finding out. I've heard that more and more lately. I'm glad the baby is doing well and I hope your family gets to 100% soon.
